Description Corey Welton 2013-06-24 21:15:18 EDT
Description of problem:

Users who install from ISO will not, without workaround, be able to install foreman-libvirt package from ISO, because the installer script, after initially configuring repo file, removes it after install is completed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download ISO and mount it.
2. Execute install_packages from iso
3. Noting that installer does not actually install foreman-libvirt, manually attempt to install it.
4. Look for repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d/ and/or examine installer script itself.

Actual results:

No package foreman-libvirt found
Observe that installer script removes repo file.

Expected results:
User can at least manually install foreman-libvirt metapackage separate from main installer.

cd <ISO mount dir>/Packages
rpm -Uvh foreman-libvirt-*.rpm
Comment 4 Corey Welton 2013-06-25 10:10:42 EDT
foreman-libvirt has dependencies, so yum might be the better route.  That said, I still had some minor dependency issues installing foreman-libvirt, even though everything was there.  I think the recommended route is creating a localrepo, but I guess it's not /too/ hard to identify all the necessary files...


yum localinstall foreman-libvirt-1.1.10014-1.noarch.rpm foreman-1.1.10014-1.noarch.rpm  foreman-compute-1.1.10014-1.noarch.rpm

I'm not even sure what the correct fix for this would be?  The solutions i can currently think of:

a) Install foreman-libvirt as part of katello-foreman-all
b) Assume the user will leave the ISO mounted, and leave the repo file in place.
c) have some script that will install a package from the iso (i.e.  ./iso-install foreman-libvirt)

Comment 7 Dominic Cleal 2013-10-15 10:26:28 EDT
We could do (2), but leave the repo disabled by default so it doesn't interfere when the ISO's removed?  Users could then do "yum --enablerepo=satellite6 install foreman-libvirt".

The other thing to consider is that we plan on having better support in the installer for plugins etc, so it might also be possible to re-run a part of the installer, which could re-enable the repo.

I dislike (1) because there are a number of pieces of optional functionality.  Always installing them on non-ISO installs via katello-foreman-all I think is over the top and will add many more packages.
Comment 8 Justin Sherrill 2013-10-15 11:01:46 EDT
yeah, agree on you 100% with a).  Leaving the repo file there but disabled is not a bad idea, i wonder what the likelihood of the user mounting it to a different location is though
Comment 9 Mike McCune 2013-10-16 17:09:40 EDT
instead of mounting why don't we just copy the repo to something like /var/satellite/installer-repo and reference that instead of mounted directly.  The repo isn't *that* big is it?
Comment 10 Justin Sherrill 2013-10-23 11:20:12 EDT

chose /opt/satellite as the destination, since these files are not tracked by the package manager
